Homeschool Review: Creating a Masterpiece

Creating a Masterpiece came at a perfect time. I’ve been looking for art instruction online for my children to learn painting. I’ve been trying to learn a bit of watercolor art myself the past few months and I was looking for tutorials that I could use to teach my kids basic techniques but couldn’t find anything I could follow easily.  I was so happy to have been given the opportunity to review Creating a Masterpiece monthly plan. It is such a gem!   I tried to send them to an Art class last year, but the results turned up short of […]

Drool-worthy Yema Cake and Frozen Brazo by Claudine’s Homemade Classics

When it comes to food, the ones I like best are usually created by chefs and patissieres I’ve met. Not that I’m being biased or anything because I do appreciate food created by people I don’t know personally, but I’ve been such a lucky gal to actually  meet some of the quality ones. I met Claudine of Claudine’s Homemade Classics at a baking workshop in 2015 at what I refer to as my favorite kitchen in the South – Feed 5000. There were four of us in the class, two of whom were running cake businesses, Claudine being one of […]

At that time, I was trying so many so-called baby soap bars and washes on him, desperate to stop his discomfort so he could sleep through the night. The pediatrician we consulted said it was nothing […]

Of #Mocktails and Motivation at #JollyUniversity Cook Off and Congress 2017

I said “yes”to judging the Mocktails category at the Jolly University Cook Off and Congress last March 3, 2017. I wasn’t sure at first when I learned that it was the category I’ve been assigned to judge, but later on decided that I’d do it from the point of view of a consumer. I may not know much about mixes and stuff, but I know my drinks, so that’s where I was coming from when I sat there and sipped on every single one of the 19 mocktails I was served. And if you’re curious about it, yep, I can’t tell you […]

Homeschool Review: Walking with the Waodani by Homeschool Adventure Co.

I have heard of the story of how the gospel was brought to the Auca Indians from one of our pastors in church a few years ago, except that I didn’t know what the tribe was called. All I knew was that they were Indians and that they killed the five missionaries who dared to go near them so they can tell them about Jesus; and how one of the wives, instead of fearing for her life or thinking of avenging her husband, courageously continued the mission to bring the gospel to these people. When I had the opportunity to […]
